We are so excited to share our 4th Utah Staycation with you! This time we’ve partnered up with Utah’s Bryce Canyon Country and Ruby’s Inn for an AMAZING STAYCATION GIVEAWAY! Go and enter here!

Red Canyon | 12 Utah Staycations

I’ve been by Red Canyon quite a few times before but have never stopped. This time, I made sure it was on the itinerary. After swimming at the hotel and eating some dinner at the Cowboy Buffet and Steak House we decided to do a quick trip to Red Canyon and go exploring. Red Canyon Visitor Center has very limited hours, so we weren’t able to go inside, but we did explore. It was SO much fun. We followed some trails and then climbed some big boulders. While Bryce Canyon National Park is magical in its own right, Red Canyon

Last time I visited there wasn’t even a trickle of water…so I’m glad I actually went back on this hike again, to help change my perspective. On our last day, we headed out semi-early to Mossy Cave Trail outside of Bryce National Park, that’s still considered part of Bryce Canyon. This .4 mile roundtrip hike is SUPER easy and you could probably do it in a stroller. In fact, we told a gal to do it in a stroller. The last part has two switchbacks that you might not be able to push the stroller, but I’d would give it

Hiking Navajo Trail with Kids in the Winter | Bryce Canyon National Park | Hike the Hoodoos Challenge

After a not so good night sleep (notice the haggard look on everyone's faces) we got off to a late start to hike Navajo Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park. Navajo Trail/Loop is 1.3 miles but we decided to hike to Two Bridges which is .6 miles one way. I've written about hiking Navajo Trail which can combine with Queens Garden in a Loop trail here, but in the winter, this hike is a "there and back again" instead of a loop. Since we went in January, we knew the trail would be muddy/icy/snow. Luckily, it was going to be

Hiking Queens Garden | Bryce Canyon National Park | Hike the Hoodoos Challenge

Thursday night I asked the husband if we should just get away for a while. So we did. We ended up in Bryce Canyon National Park. We haven’t been to Bryce Canyon with the whole family before. The last time that I’d been to Bryce I had Aiko & Orion and it was our first solo car ride without dad. See how we hiked with two tiny toddlers here. (Look how tiny they were...2015.) This time, it was going to be different, for many reasons. First, I’ve only been to Bryce Canyon when it’s blazing hot, this time we were

Mossy Cave is the last hike we took the kids on before heading out. Mossy Cave is more of a Nature Trail. See our other two here and here. I've heard about this hike for a few years from my father in law, but it always seemed out of the way. Past Bryce Canyon posts here. The scenery is breathtaking. I love how the white rocks can be seen here too. It's only .9 miles roundtrip so this is an easy one for the whole family. Mossy Cave Trail is actually OUTSIDE of Bryce Canyon National Park, but they've included
